Black and White Anemone Bridal Bouquets

With the trend of black belts or sashes accenting bridal gowns still front-and-center, what a fab time to try something different for your bridal bouquet! While bouquets of roses, peonies, stephanotis or calla lilies are lovely, why not go for a statement bouquet featuring white anemones with that dramatic ebony punch? We love these gorgeous gowns incorporating a black belt by some of our favorite designers.

Wouldn’t any of these stunning bouquets just be the icing on the cake paired with one of these wedding gowns? We hope you find these simply inspiring!

Guest Book Alternative: Photo Puzzle

We simply adore this fun alternative to a traditional guest book from Double Trouble Jigsaw Puzzles! Double Trouble allows you to upload a favorite photo of you and your beau and then mounts it on ¼” thick piece of birchwood. The artist then hand cuts the sturdy wood into puzzle pieces large enough for guests to sign their names with a short and sweet message.
The puzzle guest books can be ordered in several different sizes and quantities of pieces to fit your guest count. A bonus is that they will include special custom pieces within your puzzle, such as the bride and groom’s names or initials, the wedding date, and so on! This beautiful keepsake is a unique and amusing way to have your friends and family share the love! Happy puzzling!

Featured Friends Friday: Marie Gabrielle

Vendor and contact: Marie Gabrielle Restaurant and Gardens, Lisa Yarbro, CWP

Services offered: Ceremony and Reception Venue

How did you get started in the wedding industry and when? 10 years ago when I started working at Marie Gabrielle. I was in the corporate world before that in restaurants and hotels.

What sets you apart from other vendors? We have 1.5 acre European Gardens.

What do you do for fun besides weddings? Work out, attend sporting events, golf, travel and spend time with family and friends.

Why do you enjoy working with wedding planners? It takes some of the pressure off me and makes my job easier. I also enjoy seeing other planners’ styles.

What is your favorite thing about working w/ a StarDust Celebrations planner? They are very professional and know what they are doing. That is not always the case when I work with a planner.

What is the best single piece of advice you could give to brides? Enjoy the moment.

Trend Alert: Dessert Tables with Flavor Themes

Wanting to give your guests something above and beyond the traditional wedding cake? Maybe something unexpected, served with a side of WOW?! Consider putting together a dessert table with a variety of treats all sharing a common flavor. It’s especially fun if the flavor theme can tie into your wedding’s color palate. Here are some fun ideas to get you thinking:

Say you’re using a lovely soft green for one of your colors…why not go with a mint-themed dessert table, complete with whoopie pies of chocolate cakes sandwiching a crème de menthe filling, a vanilla bean wedding cake with a mint-infused buttercream, bite-sized grasshopper cheesecakes of minty filling in chocolate crusts and lemon mint mini-cakes with lemon syrup?

Yellow is such a great, fun color for weddings – it’s just so darn happy! Carry over the happiness to your lemon flavored dessert buffet with delectable treats such as classic lemon bars, lemon-raspberry tartlets, double-lemon punch cupcakes, lemon curd thumbprints and white wedding cake layered with lemon crème.

A caramel-themed dessert display would nicely complement a few different colors – gold, brown, amber…and the divine treat can be used in lots of ways for a luscious dessert spread. Consider some of these scrumptious ideas: turtle cheesecake bites, caramel apples, mini flans, quarto leches wedding cake with caramel sauce and petites pots de crème au caramel. Oh…my…
If these ideas don’t get you salivating, we don’t know what will! Chat with your reception venue/catering contact or your baker about some other ways to build a fabulous dessert table around a single flavor theme. And get those creative juices flowing!
